Check-in - No one was at the reception Elevator - Worrisome Room - Small, stuffy, noisy (the only window leads to central air unit) Just a really poor experience, especially for the price. At least it seemed clean.

I do not recall a microwave in the room we stayed in. The room was somewhat small and there may not have been a proper spot to place one. Whether any of Clarion's guest rooms contain microwaves, I'd ask front desk personnel.
